This is a large cluster of "Rope Knot" prehnite crystals with red hematite coated quartz. The prehnite itself is tinted tan by hematite inclusions, and it has the unusual property of forming what look like rope knots. The quartz is coated with a very saturated red hematite coating which gives them the illision of being chopped strawberries. This cluster is in particularly good condition with many fully intact rope knot crystal structures. On the back side you can see matrix material with a high concentration of red iron. 

This is from a small find in late 2016, and the specimens from the find are very rare and unusual, and really are some of the most interesting prehnites in the world. 

The specimen comes with a labeled acrylic display base.
